St. Louis food: Crown Candy reopens for curbside
ST. LOUIS – And the bacon is roasting again in one of the oldest restaurants in St. Louis!
Crown Candy will reopen for roadside delivery on Tuesday. The restaurant will reopen at 10:30 a.m.
The restaurant in the Old North neighborhood of St. Louis is known for its shakes, BLTs, and chocolates.
Owner Andy Karandzieff said the restaurant is likely to be “overwhelmed” when it reopens.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Crown Candy was closed for about four weeks.
“Fortunately, we are able to weather the storm – we had a little money in the bank that helps, we own the building – that helps a lot! But now I have to get my employees back to work, we have to start making money, ”said Karandzieff.
The restaurant was able to keep all employees during the pandemic.
A week ago, the restaurant received 1,000 pounds of bacon for a possible meat shortage across the country.

Even during the closure, the restaurant worked with Rimco Scrap Metal Processors to deliver some sweet treats to the staff on the front lines of Cardinal Glennon.
